RAVENTHRONE released their debut album on this day in 1998.
Formed by Ray Wells, also known as Pazuzu, of PAZUZU and an early member of fellow Austrian Black Metal Syndicate member SUMMONING, and Armand Hortolomei (Engelmacher).
RAVENTHRONE is a project band that I started about two years ago. Basically it sounds like PAZUZU gone Metal. It's very epic and symphonic metal with influences from all types of different styles. Once again I wanted to create something unique and elevated from the usual mass of mediocrity. The result of my experiments is RAVENTHRONE'S Debut "Malice in Wonderland". It was released a few weeks ago on Avantgarde.
